Denmark is a good 500km away from the Netherlands. And it's big news here, although not entirely surprising given that the Queen is 75 and not as stubborn as her cousin in England (not quite cousin but they are related).
Edit: We are also getting a King now yes, a change from the past close to 100 years or so in which we've had a Queen. And it's been sort of in the works for years, the Queen moved to a different (much smaller) house/palace and the Prince and Princess have been taking over many of the states visits and such over the past years.
